Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen has had a rough debut over the course of his first preseason campaign, which prompts some serious concerns about his abilities in 2018.
I want nothing more than Buffalo Bills first-year quarterback Josh Allen to have Pro Bowl-level success in the NFL. He’s from Northern California, as am I, and attended college at the University of Wyoming — a place where a number of my relatives and friends went to school.
And by all accounts I’ve read and heard, he’s a stand-up guy.
Still, that doesn’t change the fact I’m concerned with how he’ll perform this season for a Bills squad amid a massive roster overhaul underneath second-year head coach Sean McDermott.
The Bills, of course, moved up to the No. 7 overall spot in the 2018 NFL Draft to grab Allen. This move all but guaranteed Buffalo was hinging its long-term offensive hopes on the rookie signal-caller. And while Allen had plenty of major question marks from college (all quarterbacks do), McDermott and Co. were essentially going “all in” on Allen’s long-term projection and the ability to be a cornerstone for the franchise.
Hopefully all that works out before too long. But here are three major reasons why Bills fans should worry it doesn’t happen this season.
